    Can I park at my hotel on the morning of arrival? So we can go onto the park before check-in?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kim!

    There are so many benefits to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. One of them is the ability to utilize the amenities of your hotel for the full day on your day of check-in. Even if your room is not ready for you when you arrive on property, you are certainly welcome to park your car at your hotel and take complimentary Disney transportation anywhere you want to go. If you have time, it's not a bad idea to stop by the Front Desk when you arrive. I have been surprised more than once to find that my room was available at an hour much earlier than the normal check-in time. If you are in a hurry to get to one of the theme parks, however, no problem! You can either leave your bags in your car or with Bell Services. They'll keep them safe for you until you return from your adventures elsewhere on property.

    Similarly, on the day you check out of your room, you are welcome to use the amenities available at your hotel and complimentary Disney transportation for the entire day. Stay and play as long as you like!

    Let us know if you need any additional advice as you plan for your upcoming trip. My friends and I here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel would be happy to provide whatever information you may need.

    Sending best wishes and pixie dust,
